Find out when the St Patrick's Day festivities will be held in Huddersfield town centre

St Patrick's Day is just around the corner — and revellers are gearing up for the annual parade through town centre.

Huddersfield's St Patrick's Day Parade has taken place every March since 2001, and attracts hundreds of spectators each year.

Organised by the Huddersfield St Patrick's Day Parade Association, the procession features colourful floats, live music and dancing.

This year the parade will take place on Sunday March 13 at 1pm.

The parade starts and finishes at the Irish Centre in Fitzwilliam Street and follows a 1.5 mile route around the town centre, pausing in St George's Square for music and dance performances.
